Posted on June 20, 2010 by Flames

DOJ Inc. is proud to announce that they have closed a deal to acquire a majority share of Indie Press Revolution, the industry’s leading direct-sales network of high-quality small press game publishers, and will be taking over administrative operations of the company beginning July 1st, 2010. The minority shareholders have all approved the sale and will be retaining their ownership shares in the company.

“I’m delighted to be taking over a sales organization with the brand strength and reputation for quality that IPR has built over the last several years,” says Darren Watts, President of DOJ Inc. “IPR has a very strong business model and has done an outstanding job representing its client creator-publishers, and we intend to carry forward with the same philosophy in order to bring great new games to the public from the cutting edge of game design.”

“I’m excited to be working with Darren, Jason, and the rest of the DOJ team,” said Ryan Macklin, General Manager of IPR, who will be remaining in that position. “They have an excitement about IPR that I relish, and I’m looking forward to the future they’ll bring to this company.”

“DOJ Logistics has already been providing IPR and its publishers complete shipping and warehousing services since August 2008,” said DOJ Logistics Director Jason Walters, “so both the publishers and the customers of IPR should receive the same fine service they’ve come to expect.”

“DOJ Inc has been providing IPR great service and over the years we have developed a close relationship with the warehouse staff. I can’t think of any better partner for IPR to help the business grow and thrive in the years to come,” said Brennan Taylor, owner of Galileo Games and outgoing President of IPR. Mr. Taylor is retaining a minority share in IPR, as well as remaining a client publisher, and will be assisting DOJ in the transition.
